Vi Va Las Vegas

I may be going to Vegas baby! Whooo hoooo! My cousin Jer told me yesterday that him and my aunt and uncle are going out there in August and he wanted to know if I wanted to go along. Heck ya, I do! He is going out there to see Reba. She is at the Las Vegas Hilton Casino, and that's where we would be staying. I think it would be so much fun, I really hope I can go!! Only one little problem... the plane ride over there - lol... I think I could tolerate it to get to go to Vegas. And yes, I will be playing the slots!! Seriouly though, I just have the best family!! It was SO nice of them to ask me to go, AND... just to prove how great they are, they have even offered to drive all the way up here so we can go on the plane together. They're the best!!

So this week is flying by. I can't believe it's almost Friday. I still need to get my mom something for Mother's Day. We are going to go to Michigan that day to my aunt's to suprise my grandma. It's just me, my mom and my kids that are going, my dad will have to have church here. I feel bad for him that he has to stay home. I also have to say that I'm dreading the trip... 3 hours up - 3 hours back. We'll have a good time, I just hate the car ride. The odd thing is, we used to live in Michigan, only 30 minutes away from my grandparents and aunt, and we never use to get together like we do now. They're getting older though, so we need to see them as much as we can.

I got my refund check on Monday. It's still sitting in the envelope. I don't want to spend any of it until I know exactly what it is we need. I'm going to try and put as much of it in the bank as I can. I saw some shoes and matching purse at Dots last night that I really liked... I left, didn't buy them. T1 said "Go ahead mom, buy them, you deserve it." Nope, don't need them! I'm so used to not being able to splurge on myself that now it's easy to put things back on the shelves and racks. I guess that's a good thing though.

One hour until the show I wait for all week... CSI! Love that show.

OH OH OH... of course I have to mention last night's American Idol... one word: WHATTHEHECK? Yes Simon, I was as shocked as you! So shocked in fact, Gwen called right as it happened and I couldn't even get up to answer the phone! Crazy, just crazy! And you know they're not going to have a female win... the last two were females and they've only had one guy win so far, so it has to be a guy this year. I really wanted it to be Chris! So sad.
